Lightweight - Good Fit, 28 June 2016
By Howie (Yorkshire Dales)
I went into the shop looking for a use-for-everything jacket that would be suitable for walking, running, cycling and this was my pick. I found the alternatives from Rab, Montane, Beghaus etc did not have as good a fit, being especially tight across the chest and I am not exactly massive. This one appears to have a good fit for me in arm and chest and length. It is also a bit stretchy so it gives if you are doing something active. It is also pretty good in the rain. Especially bought for the summer because of the excellent weight and breathability, but recent wet weather suggests it would be my first choice for colder weather too, with enough room for another layer. I have only had the jacket a short time so I cannot comment on the durability, but it looks well made with some nice touches..
I particularly like the hood which is not as cumbersome as some other mountaineering hoods designed for helmets.
Brilliant jacket, 13 June 2016
By nrobinson93 (Sheffield)
I bought this jacket a month ago as a general purpose summer weight outer-layer. Though in that time this jacket has been in a ton of different environments.
Day to day this jacket wears so comfortably, I'm 6'3" and went for a medium for a close athletic fit, and it feels so nice to wear. The lining is really soft of bare skin and the stretch of the fabric makes it feel like you aren't wearing anything. Add to that, it's super lightweight and it makes the perfect jacket for throwing in a bag in case the weather gets worse.
I've taken it out to the Peaks and it didn't disappoint there. In biting winds I stayed perfectly warm as it keeps every bit of wind out. Even if you're caught in a shower it should keep you dry enough.
The only problems are the price, yes it's a lot, but the built quality, weight and versatility more than make up for it.
The only other issue is there is only just enough room in the shoulders for me. Though if I'd have bought the size up that wouldn't have been a problem.
All in all I couldn't recommend this jacket more.
